“Ann Flockhart was first recommended to us by  our venue at Alowyn gardens. However, straight away meeting Ann, we felt at ease and knew we were in good hands. We were a little nervous it being our second marriage and blending two families, however the suggestions and forethought Ann gave us to make our day as smooth as possible were greatly appreciated. She kept us focused and had us enjoying ourselves even with all our nerves! We would definitely recommend Ann to anyone in the future.”

“From the very first appointment with Ann we just knew that she was the Celebrant we had been looking for, She really tailored our vows and the Ceremony around us and what we as a couple were after, She made the whole process so easy and stress free, we couldn’t recommend her more highly.”

“Ann was an absolute delight to deal with right from the very beginning of the process. We were unsure of what we really wanted from our wedding ceremony (beyond it actually being, you know, legal) but Ann was really helpful in guiding us and taking all of our feedback on board to create the perfect ceremony for us.

On the day, when the thunder cracked overhead at the precise moment our ceremony was meant to start – I was a little stressed. Ann was incredibly calming and supportive in implementing ‘plan B’. She accommodated a delay to the start time in the hope the rain would pass and even helped grab some chairs as everyone rushed for cover. Ann’s advice and expertise were very much appreciated, particularly in that moment! Thank you, Ann!”

“We found Ann approachable, professional, reliable and full of great suggestions! My husband and I have both been married before and wanted a small wedding and simple ceremony that reflected us. We had only one face-to-face meeting with Ann prior to the rehearsal where we quickly completed the necessary paperwork and spent the majority of the time discussing how we met, our families and what type of ceremony we wanted.

Ann’s experiences both professionally and personally meant she was able to quickly understand what we were trying to achieve. From this one meeting Ann was able to email us a draft ceremony with suggested options for vows and readings. We were able to email back and forth as many times as we wanted until we were happy. As we planned our wedding in just three months Ann’s suggestions for local florists and photographers were also a great help.

On the day Ann added personal touches to our ceremony from the conversations we had at our meeting. She also recited a few sentences we wrote about each other and emailed to her separately, these were a wonderful surprise and were greatly enjoyed by us and our guests. No detail was overlooked by Ann, right down to what colour dress she would wear on the day to ensure not to clash with the wedding party! We would like to thank Ann for conducting our ceremony without a hitch, and would recommend her to anyone.”

We first met Ann at an open day for Fergusson’s Winery in the Yarra Glen. We knew straight away that this was the destination for our special day. Upon talking to Ann we felt very comfortable with her and thought she would be a great fit for our ceremony.

We met with Ann a year before our wedding to discuss us as a couple and how we wanted our ceremony to go. She was very helpful in what we should include and provided examples of vows and readings. We created our own vows which Ann had ready for us on the day which made it easy to refer to if we lost our spot. We also had two readings by friends and family. Ann also asked us each to provide her with some things we loved about each other which she would read on the day. We didn’t know what each other had written so this was a beautiful surprise on the day and a nice touch. Ann also met us at the venue the day before our wedding which really helped with the smooth running of the ceremony and I think helped calmed our nerves.

Our ceremony was just beautiful. Ann was very professional in her manner yet warm and approachable, and her heart felt words and well wishes were lovely. All the paperwork was efficiently done so we didn’t need to worry about everything. Ann also gave us a printed copy of the whole ceremony, so we could keep it and reflect. I would definitely recommend Ann’s services as a celebrant, she did an amazing job and made our wedding ceremony perfect.
